Message 1: Education Foundation of Europe New Initiative
Date: 09-Mar-2007
From: Joel Josephson <joel_josephsonkindersite.org>
Subject: Education Foundation of Europe New Initiative

The initiative is called 'The Education Foundation of Europe' but the
reality is that the founding group wishes to build an NGO that can reach
out globally to all. It has been launched by a group of senior educators
within Europe who have worked and networked together over a number of
years on educational projects funded by the European Union, primarily
within languages. The foundation will be looking to effect real changes in
education by:
a. Knowledge transference
b. Knowledge comparison
c. Cross-fertilization and pollinization
d. Innovation and technology

The foundation will achieve these missions by:
a. Carrying out education projects based on international partnerships
b. Educational knowledge transference and comparison, to and from,
developed and developing nations
c. Cross-fertilization and cross-pollinization across national boundaries
